Memorable Kiss

I also want to see Matsuo Basho as my master of haiku.

a day of quiet gladness,
Mount Fuji is veiled
In misty rain.    © Basho

I have had this kind of day today – a day of gladness – together with my oldest grandchild. Not exactly quiet but in great and deep confidence about life and sharing. Talking about important issues and feelings. In connection characterized by love and understanding. The most important life values I can imagine. How thankful I can be – and I am.
Everybody reflect about the question:
What’s the meaning of life?
My answer is:
To raise children who takes (very) good care of their – also other’s –  children and raise them to good and caring humans.
… oh my wonderful grandchildren … oh my dear children … you have done so well!
above all tops
no mountain can reach – true
humanity to find
I have my two worlds and I am so thankful for them. My roots in Sweden – so very deep – I can follow back when starting the records – early 1600. And my step out into the gem of Europe – center of culture and performing arts – a “melting pot of all people” – as I see Budapest in Hungary. As you know I find people outstanding the most interesting .. and in Budapest I can mingle anonymously as much as I ever want. I love it! I appreciate it so much. Soon I will take off again! Lots of events planned.
But … I think you would never guess where in our world I would like to move if I could have my inner wish come true …. Try! … You have a chance to guess now.
dear mountain
keeping a mother’s deepest
of all truth
… and I promise my warmest hug and a memorable kiss for the right answer!

Basho and I
share the same moon
and the same joy
of words about nature
I know – Basho taught me

Oh my gosh! This will be too hard! I need that dragon fiery rod now indeed.
in dreams
stars are listening
you know
***
some wings
made a memorable
visit
bringing me to the world of
dragonflies

Well – now you will think I’m even more crazy – cause I feel I have a certain connection to dragonflies. They like me to photo shoot them. They perform for me. They follow me. I talk to them. Last session was when I visited the Tanja in south east Hungary in August. They were so funny! We were in the wine yard as you can see on top.
Left me with hundreds of photos. This one presented me to his/her fellow later.

Solen dök

Anton satt på bänken de hade som “sin”. Där hade de fin utsikt över vattnet och fick även en känsla av avskildhet.  De brukade pussas och kela. En gång hade det faktiskt hänt lite mer. Nu pirrade det i Anton när han tänkte på Ellen. De var så förälskade i varandra men kunde bara träffas tisdagar och torsdagar. Ellen var strängt hållen och just dessa dagar jobbade hennes pappa även på kvällarna.
Nu var det torsdag och Anton längtade så. Han hade köpt en present  och ville överraska Ellen. Hon skulle fylla 13 år på lördag. Han kramade presenten i sin hand.
Anton väntade och väntade. Ellen dök inte upp.
När solen sakta sänkte sig ner bakom kullarna och försvann kände Anton sig helt söndersliten inombords. Ensam och övergiven. Tusen frågor utan svar.
Det blir långt till tisdag.

Praising Please!

Please let’s talk about
praising
without any made upp
stories, fairytales like
religions
with Gods!

Let’s just praise
nature!

And being thankful
for our place
in the evolution
in universe
just now.

Please!

Visiting the Elte Garden – The oldest botanical garden in Budapest today – I had the best opportunity to praise nature. I was amazed … again … by nature.
